I think we are having very similar wonderful experiences. With my analyst, there is a bit less emphasis on verbal interpretations, and quite a bit more on non-verbal communications- trying to read what the other's eyes are saying, and what our body language is saying. At times (these are the best times). a glance will open up a flood of joy and well-being. Anything we say afterwards is much less powerful than the primary experience we have just had. Those don't happen, at least not in full force, very often, but when they do, they are so healing, so powerful, so full of joy and well-being. It's almost impossible to express in words how precious and wonderful they are.

I knew my analyst about nine months before he told me that he would never leave me. This grew out of the warmth and trust which had been growing in our relationship. We have a healthy, warm and often joyful relationship, and one that's getting even better as time goes on. This is by way of explaining his pledge to me. I don't know anything, of course, about your therapist's 18-year commitment to the woman from whom he eventually had to extricate himself, but I can assure you that that situation is nothing like my own. My understanding of what my analyst said is that I will be the one to gradually leave, when I know I'm ready...and, also, that I may never leave completely...like you.
